First I would like to give a warm welcome to my new follower Ghazala. Perhaps you might like to drop in on her too.
Recently I went to a workshop where we made a card similar to the one I am sharing today.
Unfortunately I was unable to buy the stamp set we used, Paper Artsy (by Lin Brown) I think, as their order hadn't arrived. So I stamped a few extras of the flower heads to bring home.
As I hadn't stamped the stems and leaves I drew some myself on scraps of white card, coloured them very roughly with distress inks and cut them out.
The flowers are also coloured with distress inks and I put on the white dots with a white Sharpie pen, which once well primed is a true white.
I tore up pieces from an old gardening book and some music craft paper for the background. After sticking them down I rubbed over with Tea Dye distress ink and some Cut n Dry.
The strip of brown is old packaging and the button and raffia are from my stash. I added a Wink of Stella clear to the central flower.
I'm taking my card over to enter into Pixies Snippet Playground - Week 225 and would also like to enter it into the Crafty Calendar Challenge for April - Anything Goes and
Brown Sugar Challenge blog #194
